I can say in our 23 years of selling goodies from people’s homes that this is an amazing antique, vintage and contemporary sale of treasures that you won’t believe. One of THE COSTUME JEWELRY clients go back 7 or 8 years from the household of a hoarder that had a condominium that had an 18″ corridor throughout her whole home.
